Benefits of Driving a 2011 Ford Focus Sedan
The Ford Focus features good economy ratings, and when combined with its low base price, the Focus is one of the most frugal commuter vehicles available. Its 2008 redesign gave the Focus a real sense of refinement inside, and a smooth, quiet ride. SYNC, still a Ford exclusive, allows hands-free control over phones and music devices--well worth the option cost.
What's new for 2011?
With a major redesign on track for the 2012 model year, the 2011 Focus remains largely unchanged. The lineup shrinks slightly, with the 2-door coupe now discontinued. SEL models are now available with an automatic transmission only, with no manual transmission available.
